This homicide comes on the heels of another shooting in late October where a 29-year-old Selma area man was killed just after 7 a.m. Oct. 27 in the area of Sherman and Young streets.

Witnesses reported seeing a car pull up and a conversation take place between the subjects in the vehicle and the victim. A subject exited the vehicle and started firing at the victim, striking him several times.

In another recent shooting in mid-October, two young brothers were injured as their family made their way home from church on Gaynor between Valley View and Yerba streets.

In a different incident, Jill Soares, 44, of Selma, died in a pedestrian versus a car collision that took place at Floral and DeWolf avenues around 10:30 p.m. Nov. 8.

Jennifer Simonian, 49, also of Selma, was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe west on Floral but did not see the pedestrian walking on the edge of the roadway in the unlit area.

Soares was walking west on Floral, east of DeWolf Avenue, and was wearing dark clothing. She was taken to the Selma hospital and later succumbed to her injuries there.
